Probably one of his last decent ones.

I've read Jack Higgins Novels man and boy and he's still one of my favorite novelists-still just-ish. If you're reading this review you're probably a seasoned Higgins fan and know what I mean when I say you know exactly what you're getting every time you pick up a Jack Higgins novel, a kind description of his work post 1979 would be somewhat formulaic. This is the one which set the template for most of his modern body of work. Liam Devlin in a race to stop a KGB assassin. Like most of his Novel's it very violent although somewhat tweed in that respect by modern standards and very exciting in a really accessible way. Confessional is well crafted fast moving and well worth a read. If you're new to Higgins however do yourself a great service and start with something like the Eagle has Landed or some early Sean Dillon stuff.
